    I am a native Argentinean. This restaurant is the real deal. Have some empanadas, a provoletta, and share a parrillada. The staff was super friendly and the food was delicious. Absolutely recommended!

    Love this place . The bartenders rock. The drinks are unbelievable and made with great mixology natural elements . We ordered the filet which was enough for 2 and mash potatoes can't wait to go back

    PureWow: You’ll have to order about five here. Simply have to. Stuffed with beef, chicken, ham and cheese, or veggies and cheese, the plump turnovers are accompanied with a crazy-good, garlicky dip.

    Get the ham and cheese empanada, grilled cheese appetizer, and end with the ribeye. All so excellent!

    It's good. Tues is half price wine. I'd go again- but not rushing. Try it. Chicken chimi was great. Steak a big chewy. But overall good. We ate outside which was nice at 75 degrees

    Intimate, exotic and rustic vibe. Great for a Argentina style date! The wine pairing was nice.

    20% off on Fridays for teachers and nurses; reasonably priced, better than its sister restaurant, and it takes reservations

    Most of their meat is free range and free of antibiotics. And also delicious.

    Ok, I want to love it. The ambience is so gorgeous. But overall the food is just ok(and a bit in the expensive side for what it us). One exception, the empanadas.

    Lomo, medium. Chimichurri. Death by juicy meat. That's what she said. Stop it.

    Link Relleno with a Malbec. Do it. Also try a Quilmes with your empenadas.

    Get the filet (it's actually 2 steaks) with spinach mashed potatoes. Medium rare, and you will go home happy.

    Mojitoes and caipirinha are exceptional! The food was decent, but the service and wait between orders left A LOT to be desired. All in all, I would certainly give it another shot.
